云计算代写｜ICC104 Introduction to Cloud Computing
This assessment assesses student’s capabilities to identify key cloud characteristics, service models and deployment models.
During this assessment, students should go through the four case studies identified below and prepare a short report (250 words each) around the case studies as per the instructions.
Case Study 1: ExxonMobil moves to Cloud
“XTO Energy is a subsidiary of ExxonMobil and has major holdings in the Permian Basin, one of the world’s most important oil-producing regions. To overcome the challenges of monitoring and optimizing a vast number of widely dispersed field assets, XTO Energy has been digitalizing its Permian operations. By using Microsoft Azure IoT technologies to electronically collect data and then using Azure solutions to store and analyse it, XTO Energy gains new insights into good operations and future drilling possibilities”. (Microsoft, 2018)

Case Study 2: Autodesk Builds Unified Log Analytics Solution on AWS to Gain New Insights
“Autodesk, a leading provider of 3D design and engineering software, wants to do more than create and deliver software. It also wants to ensure its millions of global users have the best experience running that software. To make that happen, Autodesk needs to monitor and fix software problems as quickly as possible. Doing this was challenging, however, because the company’s previous application-data log solution struggled to keep up with the growing volume of data needing to be analyzed and stored.” (Amazon Web Services, n.d)

Case Study 3: ‘Pay by the Drink’ Flexibility Creates Major Efficiencies and Revenue for Coca-Cola’s
International Bottling Investments Group (BIG)
“BIG’s stated goal is to drive efficiencies, higher revenue, greater transparency and higher standards across all of its bottlers. But, the bottlers within BIG each faced very unique challenges inherent to their business and markets. Thus the challenge for the business was how to address the unique complexities and requirements of a very diverse group of bottlers with efficient infrastructure and standardized processes.” (Virtual Stream, n.d)

Case Study 4: Rocketbots improves its systems availability in difficult regions while optimizing the cost.
“Since Rocketbots in its essence is a software solution built on the cloud, they needed the availability to give their customers their high-end solution at any time. For other providers giving Rocketbots the availability, they needed in Southeast Asia proved difficult. By leveraging Alibaba Cloud’s many data centers throughout Asia, Rocketbots was able to give their customers an optimized solution that would work well and more importantly was available when they needed it.“ (Alibaba Group, n.d) Read the Complete Case Study: https://www.alibabacloud.com/customers/rocketbots
The assessment requires you to prepare a report based on the case studies mentioned above.
Start off with a short introduction (approximately 250 words) stating what the report is about and some basic information relevant to the case study. For example, you can provide background information including some context related to cloud computing. This section will be written in complete sentences and paragraphs. No tables, graphs, diagrams or dot points should be included.
The main body of the report should comprise of four different sections of 250 words each (one section for each of the above mentioned case studies). With each section specifically addressing the following questions about the case study.
- Introduction of the case
- What was the challenge?
- How the challenge was solved?
- What were the different service models each utilized?
- What services of public cloud providers each case study used?
- What are the different deployment models each utilized?
Finally, write a conclusion (approximately 250 words) as a summary of your analysis of the case. This section brings together all of the information that you have presented in your report and should link to the purpose of the assessment as mentioned in the introduction. You can also discuss any areas which have been identified as requiring further investigation and how this will work to improve or change our understanding of the topic. This section does not introduce or discuss any new information specifically, and like the introduction, will be written in complete sentences and paragraphs. No tables, graphs, diagrams or dot points should be included.
